NFL 2014 Mock Draft
Round 2 - Picks 49-64

CMD #11
April 16, 2014


49 NY Jets
Jeremiah Attaochu
    Georgia Tech
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     +24
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
252
Alternate Pick #1
Davante Adams
Alternate Pick #2
Paul Richardson
Jeremiah Attaochu ranks as the 25th-best prospect on our Big Board. Taking him here at pick 49 represents great value, something our GM appears to favor. Attaochu has played both the 3-4 OLB spot (2012) and with his hand in the dirt as a 4-3 DE (2013). That versatility will provide added value for Rex Ryan's defense. Attaochu has beenvery productive playing both positions with 10 sacks/12 TFL in 2012 and 12.5 sacks/16 TFL in 2013. It's not really a surprise to see that Calvin Pace has returned for another season, after his 10-sack performance in 2013, but Pace is getting up there in age (34 this season), and can't be counted on too much longer.
50 Miami
Shayne Skov
    Stanford
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
6'2"
Weight:
245
Alternate Pick #1
Carlos Hyde
Alternate Pick #2
Yawin Smallwood
Miami's Round 2 pick stays the same in CMD#11. Skov's a physical player with superb instincts (353 tackles in 56 games) who plays the game with passion and perseverance (torn ACL in 2011). The former Cardinal is a blue-collar worker, similar to former Dolphins legend Zach Thomas, and loves to blow up opposing RBs. While he's adept at stopping the run, Skov's lack of top-end speed and limited agility may prevent him from playing much in passing situations. Current MLB Ellerbe is the opposite. Perfect match! Ellerbe could move outside, forcing Wheeler/Misi to compete for the other OLB spot, with Skov at MLB. In passing situations Ellerbe can move back inside.
51 Chicago
Jimmie Ward
    Northern Illinois
    SS
    Reach/Value:     -64
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
193
Alternate Pick #1
Bashaud Breeland
Alternate Pick #2
Keith McGill
NIU's run at a BCS Bowl was fueled mainly by the exploits of Heisman Candidate Jordan Lynch. However, one does not live by offense alone; their success was as much about the exploits of their star on the other side of the ball. Despite his small-school status, Ward is a big-time prospect.. He is a dual threat - a ball-hawk in coverage and a hard-hitter. Though his season performance speaks for itself (95 tackles, 7 INTs, Jim Thorpe Finalist), Ward still put on a show at his Pro Day. Despite a foot injury that would later require a screw, Ward twice ran a 4.47 forty. The injury may be enough to scare off some teams from a late RD1 pick, leaving the Bears with an absolute steal.
52 Arizona
Will Clarke
    West Virginia
    DE34
    Reach/Value:     -8
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
273
Alternate Pick #1
James Gayle
Alternate Pick #2
Jackson Jeffcoat
While the biggest need on the Cardinals' roster is at Right Tackle, General Manager Steve Keim has hinted that he might invest heavily in his defense this draft: "In our situation, we are closer to having a dominant defense. So I think you have to continue to throw gas on the fire. Continue to build the strength." This is why the Cardinals go back-to-back picks on the defensive side of the ball in this DRAFTSIM. Here the Cardinals add a young and long player in Will Clarke to eventually take over for Darnell Dockett at the Defensive End spot opposite of Calais Campbell. ~Jordan Plocher, Cardinals Analyst
53 Green Bay
Troy Niklas
    Notre Dame
    TE
    Reach/Value:     -10
Height:
6'6"
Weight:
270
Alternate Pick #1
Marcus Martin
Alternate Pick #2
Yawin Smallwood
With the Bears making a huge leap in front of the Packers to swipe Jimmy Ward from under their noses and Deone Bucannon also gone, the Packers turn their attention to positions of need on offense; that would mean TE or Center. The choice here is between Niklas and Marcus Martin, but with the Packers' penchant for only drafting tackles and then moving them inside, the pick has to be Niklas. Built like a tall linebacker (which he was until the 2012 season), Niklas is still learning the position but has advanced quickly up the ranks and has a lot of upside.

54 Philadelphia
James Gayle
    Virginia Tech
    OLB34
    Reach/Value:     -8
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
259
Alternate Pick #1
Jackson Jeffcoat
Alternate Pick #2
Davante Adams
The Eagles need more defensive help, and it shows as they double down on the unit early in CMD#11. The defensive backfield was upgraded in Round 1 (SS Pryor), but help at LB - both inside and outside - is needed too. OLB Cole was surprisingly strong in Davis's D last season, but how long will he last? Barwin and Graham were average, but more is needed from that duo. Gayle, a three-year starter for the Hokies, will be a nightmare in passing situations. He's got the rare height-weight-speed combination that talent evaluators crave. Simply put, Gayle is a a fearsome rusher and sure tackler. He'll excel as a situational player as a rookie while learning the NFL game.
55 Cincinnati
Cyrus Kouandjio
    Alabama
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     +3
Height:
6'7"
Weight:
322
Alternate Pick #1
Jackson Jeffcoat
Alternate Pick #2
Carlos Hyde
Big Whit should be the starting LT this season but as of now is still listed as a G. Keeping him at G would add longevity to his career, as well as strengthen the run game. Cyrus Kouandjio had some red flags at the Combine about a knee issue, but it was later reported as a precaution and determined not to be a big deal. He is a plug-in Day One starter at LT if needed. He is a dominating OT who has good feet and leverage. There are only 2 OTs listed on the roster, 3 if you count Whitworth. The contracts of half the O-Line will also be expiring in 2015. This is a great pick to add youth and bring in the next franchise LT.
56 San Francisco
Marcus Martin
    USC
    OC
    Reach/Value:     +2
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
310
Alternate Pick #1
DaQuan Jones
Alternate Pick #2
Bashaud Breeland
Ever since January, our DRAFTSIM models have been slotting Centers to the Niners in the 2nd Round. The team let last year's starting OC Jonathan Goodwin walk, and the depth chart shows only hitherto-sparingly-used Daniel Kilgore at Center. Back in January, it was Weston Richburg or Travis Swanson projected here, but they've both been surpassed by Marcus Martin since the Combine. Here's a nice piece on Martin, and Centers in general from NFL.com. Whether or not the team is actually able to land Martin this deep into Round 2 remains to be seen, but Richburg and Swanson would also represent an upgrade over Kilgore.



57 San Diego
DaQuan Jones
    Penn State
    DT34
    Reach/Value:     +0
Height:
6'4"
Weight:
322
Alternate Pick #1
Josh Mauro
Alternate Pick #2
Davante Adams
DaQuan Jones has been locked into the Chargers 2nd Round pick for some time now. Honestly, I find it hard to argue against the logic. I documented last week how Lissemore isn't likely suited for a Full-Time role at NT. Bolts' fans know that there needs to be a guy in the middle of the DL who can make plays when he's on the sidelines. The problem is that it's often difficult for young Nose Tackles to make an impact as a rookie. Jones, however, should be able to adjust quickly given his experience at PSU. He will need a few years in an NFL weight room in order to reach his potential, but he should be able to plug a hole and fill in as a rotational NT early on in his career.
58 New Orleans
Bashaud Breeland
    Clemson
    CB
    Reach/Value:     -1
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
197
Alternate Pick #1
Travis Swanson
Alternate Pick #2
Carlos Hyde
Show of hands for everyone that initially chuckled when they heard the Saints added Champ Bailey to their roster!? Yep, quite a few of you. I'm guilty as well - and it was a rather hearty chuckle at that. After all, it's not like Bailey was doing much "shutting down" of anyone of note the past couple of seasons. We won't even mention the recent Super Bowl disaster or the AFC Championship Game the year before. However, he does have one distinct attribute the Saints can use: game knowledge and veteran leadership. Okay, that's two, but you get my point(s). Bailey certainly could help mentor a guy like Bashaud Breeland, who will ultimately prove he was overlooked by a few too many scouts.
59 Indianapolis
Martavis Bryant
    Clemson
    WRF
    Reach/Value:     -5
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
211
Alternate Pick #1
Gabe Jackson
Alternate Pick #2
Davante Adams
Yes, this might be surprising. Yes, Bryant is ranked behind other wideouts. And yes, the Colts need to shore up their defense and offensive line. But with Reggie Wayne still aging and Hakeem Nicks on "temporary loan," the Colts will need a solid wideout eventually. Sooner rather than later is more likely. Bryant will get time to develop behind two solid veteran wideouts and should be able to glean oodles of insight from both in his rookie year (Awesome - I worked in the word "oodles" in a NFL draft commentary!). Martavis has exceptional hands and route technique and that will only get better. At 6'-4", he also gives the Colts a deadly redzone and short-yardage presence.
60 Carolina
Billy Turner
    North Dakota St
    LOT
    Reach/Value:     -27
Height:
6'5
Weight:
315
Alternate Pick #1
Seantrel Henderson
Alternate Pick #2
Jack Mewhort
This Hog-Molly stands 6'5, 315 lbs. and has a huge 81-inch wingspan. He started 15 games last season and gave up zero sacks. Watch his tape and you'll see a guy that loves contact and plays through the whistle. Also, his father played for the Vikings and his brother for the Giants so his DNA has what it takes to play in the NFL. Look for this underrated talent to be an immediate starter at ROT and eventually will protect Cam's blindside. ~Erin Ford, Panthers Analyst
61 San Francisco
Dri Archer
    Kent St
    WRS
    Reach/Value:     -18
Height:
5'7"
Weight:
175
Alternate Pick #1
Davante Adams
Alternate Pick #2
Paul Richardson
DRAFTSIM deals the Niners Dri Archer again. At 5'-9" and175 lbs, the question on the minds of many is "can Archer get off of the line of scrimmage". Possibly not, but the same was said about fellow small fry DeSean Jackson. But Jackson is more of an exception to the rule. If Archer proves to be ineffective in the slot, the Niners have at the minimum a 4.24 kick returner. But fast forward to the actual draft; we do not expect Archer to be selected by the Niners in the 2nd round. It would be great if Trent Baalke could pick him up on day 3, but for day 2, we anticipate the Niners will be wheeling and dealing their four day 2 picks. Oh yeah, the compensatory selection makes it five.
62 New England
Jackson Jeffcoat
    Texas
    DE43
    Reach/Value:     +1
Height:
6'3"
Weight:
247
Alternate Pick #1
Chris Smith
Alternate Pick #2
Yawin Smallwood
Despite completing his last collegiate season with 13 sacks and the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year title, Jeffcoat finds himself available toward the end of the 2nd Round, much to the delight of everyone in New England. In addition to his production on the field and his First Team All-American accolades, the 6'3" Senior impressed at the Combine, finishing fourth in the 40-yard dash, sixth in the vertical jump, fourth in the broad jump, second in the three-cone drill, and first in the 20-yard shuttle among all defensive linemen. Putting a young, athletic, and productive End in the hands of one of the game's best defensive minds would be troubling for the rest of the league.
63 Denver
Chris Borland
    Wisconsin
    ILB
    Reach/Value:     -30
Height:
5'11"
Weight:
248
Alternate Pick #1
Keith McGill
Alternate Pick #2
Carlos Hyde
For those who have doubts about Chris Borland's ability to play MLB in the NFL I have two names for you: Mike Singletary and Zach Thomas. Both of those players were considered too small and lacking speed. It may have helped that they played in run-oriented eras, but a player like Borland can still be quite valuable to an NFL defense. He is a technically-sound, high-motor, tone-setting, sure-tackling, intense leader who is consistently in the right place at the right time. Not since Al "Smoke Dog" Wilson have the Broncos had someone in the middle of their defense qualified to wear the green sticker on the back of their helmet. If you missed last week, click here and here to get a taste...
64 Seattle
Seantrel Henderson
    Miami (FL)
    ROT
    Reach/Value:     -11
Height:
6'7''
Weight:
331
Alternate Pick #1
Jarvis Landry
Alternate Pick #2
Kelcy Quarles
With my scenario proposed earlier, the addition of (a healthy) Sidney Rice obviates the need for WR early in this draft. The biggest need, the offensive line, again is addressed with the massive Seantrel Henderson who stands at 6'7 and 331 pounds. The biggest weakness for the Seahawks becomes its strength with the pairing of Henderson and Su'a-Filo. Henderson comes with some issues which include injuries, suspensions, and benchings. That being said, he possesses the physical gifts to be a dominant NFL RT. I always assume the master motivator Pete Carroll can get those high-risk/high-reward players to play to their potential, so with that being said, great pickup for Seattle.
